FlawCheck can define allowable flaw sizes to qualify inspection results and define inspection intervals to positively identify sub-critical flaws.
Flawcheck was created by a team of experts in materials and damage assessment using industry input and codes of practice.
The software simplifies the assessment of structural defects by seamlessly linking user-selected, industry-accepted load characterization, fatigue and failure assessment procedures.
The FlawCheck software was developed as a flexible engineering analysis and design support tool that can use data developed from field instrumentation, numerical simulation tools and finite element models to develop asset life or integrity predictions. This capability, along with its user-friendly interface, makes the software ideal for developing integrity management programs, supporting repair decisions, defining inspection intervals or selecting inspection tools.
FlawCheck can use actual or judgement-based structural loading data to estimate the potential for fatigue-related growth of flaws and to determine the potential for fracture. It is designed to accept analytical techniques while making assessment and documentation simpler.
